If you would've told the 2008 me that I could find dates sitting on my couch in a snuggie watching Key & Peele eating Pringles sipping a Fiji water in adidas flip flops I would've said "nah bruh".
I wonder how much the game would be different if players of the past had a tool like this.
Well, it just might have been your A-List beloved – particularly if his or her name sat next to a little blue tick – because Tinder has introduced verified profiles for “notable public figures, celebrities and athletes”, much like Twitter and Facebook.
And if you’re all too familiar with the perils of Tinder, we’ve charted the 12 most soul-destroying things about online dating. When it first came on the scene, it was used more as a hook-up/casual sex app because it finds you potential matches based on their proximity to you, but now almost everyone seems to be on it. It finds your location using GPS, then uses your Facebook information to create your profile (don’t worry, nothing about Tinder will ever be posted to Facebook).
But, if all of this means nothing to you, you’re going to want to know exactly what is Tinder and how does Tinder work? A Tinder profile is made up of your first name, age, photos (of your choice) and any pages you’ve ‘liked’ on Facebook. There are Tinder trends you can follow, too: a recent analysis of 12,000 profile photos of both men and women showed that 72% of them wore neutral colours in their pictures, as opposed to eye-catching bright colours or a garish print, with the colour black overwhelmingly popular for people’s chosen outfits. Even Zac Effron recently admitted that he couldn’t get someone to swipe right for him on tinder after he joined the app post break-up with Sami Miro.
Recently, Tinder also added a feature that lets you share your education and occupation in your bio – so you can see if you share common interests with potential matches. Admittedly, this was probably down to everyone thinking his tinder profile was fake. So if a Hollywood A-lister can’t even get it right, how on earth are we meant to create the perfect Tinder profile (right-swipeable obvs) to lure in our soul mate?
